Default No SAVE Command

Are you saying there is a paper tape command within basic? For the 680, all I can find is the csave command used in the cassette version for cassette saving. I am not aware of any paper tape writing routine in 680 basic. So, I have to either paste a text listing into basic to load, or type "list" and buffer capture for save.
There's no paper tape SAVE command in the 8800 versions of BASIC. If you type LIST, then turn on the Teletype tape punch and press Return, the tape will be punched and contain the listing with an additional OK at the end. This can then be read into a BASIC session but will give a Syntax Error because of the OK. The entire program will be in memory, though.
